When I saw this I couldn't believe my eyes. I was just thinking that if will 2 mL Is 1.2 million units and 4 ML is 2.4 million units, this does not seem right. Besides the fact that this would be extremely painful it totally doesn't look right to me. I was told that anything larger than 4 ML Should be split into multiple doses. I grew up on a farm and this syringe looks like something we used on cattle. Is this safe? You can see the amount of penicillin at the 8:30 mark of the video.
